Nokia – Snake
Who doesn’t know the legendary game ‘Snake’? Although launched in 1998, it’s still considered one of the most popular games ever created.
Nokia was also the first telecom company who turned a mobile phone into something more than just a device to ring or text someone. Thanks to Snake, Nokia made the first early bird steps in transforming the device into a social instrument.
To celebrate this innovation, Nokia decided to relaunch the ultimate classic, but this time on Facebook.
We set people up for the ultimate Snake Battle. During a period of 5 weeks it was up to the players to achieve the highest score with the game and to challenge their friends. Each week, the three best Belgian and Dutch players were rewarded with some great Nokia prices: a Nokia C7, Nokia N8, Nokia Bluetooth Stereo Headset or a Nokia MD-11 speaker.
After these five weeks, we invited the 10 best gamers from Belgium and the Netherlands for an ultimate real-life Snake battle in Breda. In this competition they not only fought for the title ‘Best Snaker of the Lowlands’; also their national pride was at stake.
This lead to a thrilling finale in which the Netherlands was crowned as the ultimate snake-charmer. All the finalists were rewarded with a spankin’ new handset: a Nokia N9 for the Belgian players and a Nokia Lumia 800 for the Dutch finalists.
For the nostalgia gamers among us, you can still play the game at the Nokia Facebook tab. You can even create your own personal Snake-level and share it with your friends. Or embed the code into your blog or website. And for those who’d rather like to play the game on their own Nokia handset, can simply download the application via the Ovi Store.
